Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The most listened to show.

This is a tough one as there are so many shows that are great for different reasons. However here recently I think I discovered the one. 11/23/73 El Paso, TX. I honestly believe that this could be the most underrated show of the year, also there are so many great shows just in November of '73. But, for my tastes this has to be the one. There are a few reasons that it gets over looked. When I was first introduced to it, it wasn't listed in the Taping Compendium and Deadbase only had a partial listing. So for those reasons I think it gets over looked that and there are a few cuts. But, overall it is a solid performance and has an amazing China>Rider. The meat of the show is He's Gone>Truckin>Other One that goes into some deep space (I really hate using the term space for most things before '78) But, the "space" elicits giggles out of me I guess just because it's so out there. Not only is the playing very tight and loose at the same time, but the vocal harmonies really stand out for me. Even Donna sounds good. So...for my tastes and where it takes me this show is just exactly perfect and find myself giving it a lot off attention recently

If there is anyone who could help me out with a lossless copy I would appreciate it. Thanks
